WakeUpJA: A Beacon of Change for Jamaica


In Jamaica’s vibrant and culturally rich landscape, amidst the reggae rhythms and the lively spirit of its people, a movement emerges that seeks to awaken the nation to its fullest potential. This movement, known as WakeupJA or Wake Up Jamaica, is not merely a call to consciousness but a rallying cry for action and progress.


At its core, WakeupJA drives with a deep-seated desire to address the pressing issues that have long plagued Jamaica. WakeupJA aims to spotlight these issues and inspire a collective effort towards positive change from economic inequality to social injustice, environmental degradation, and political corruption.

Founded by a group of passionate individuals from diverse backgrounds, including activists, artists, educators, and entrepreneurs, WakeupJA is a grassroots movement that harnesses the power of community organizing, social media, and advocacy to amplify its message and mobilize supporters.


Wake up Jamaica partners with Give Love Back to donate school supplies to the children in Grants Pen, Kingston, Jamaica.

Since its inception, WakeupJA has made significant strides in raising awareness and driving conversations around critical issues facing Jamaica. Through social media campaigns, public events, and community outreach initiatives, WakeupJA has successfully engaged citizens from all walks of life, encouraging them to participate in the democratic process and demanding accountability from their leaders.

One notable accomplishment of the movement is its advocacy for constitutional reform. WakeupJA organized WakeUp sessions across Jamaica, educating the public on the importance of every citizen’s involvement in our political process. The WakeUp sessions are essential educational workshops. They promote citizen participation and inspire individuals to adopt a hands-on approach to their daily political lives.

Moreover, WakeupJA has been a vocal advocate for social justice and human rights in Jamaica. The movement has consistently championed the rights of marginalized communities and called for systemic reforms to address issues of inequality.


WakeUpJa is embarking on a dynamic array of projects designed to ignite positive change this year. The projects will also celebrate the vibrant spirit of Jamaica. They aim to foster community engagement and knowledge-sharing by continuing their WakeUp sessions. These forums and workshops provide a platform for open, non-judgemental discussions. School tours will see the organization actively connecting with the youth, recognizing them as the cornerstone of Jamaica’s future.

WakeUpJa will organize Film Screenings and Art Exhibitions celebrating Jamaica’s rich history and culture, using visual mediums to instil pride. WakeUpJa’s music compilation project seeks to harmonize voices in a powerful symphony, inspiring and uplifting all who listen.

Through robust social media engagement, they aspire to reach a global audience, share their mission, and build a community of supporters worldwide. Street Art Initiatives will serve as a canvas for awakening the spirit and culture of Jamaica through artistic expression. Simultaneously, their Crowd-Funding efforts will rally financial support, ensuring the success of the multifaceted campaign and its positive impact on the Jamaican community. Together, these projects form a comprehensive approach to fostering positive change and celebrating the essence of Jamaica.
